Ohio State Football: Redshirt freshman Tracy Sprinkle arrested, suspended indefinitely

There’s some bad news to report on after a highly successful week for the Ohio State football team as redshirt freshman offensive lineman Tracy Sprinkle was arrested on Friday for an altercation at a bar.

Kyle Rowland over at Eleven Warriors was the first to report the news.

Ohio State defensive lineman Tracy Sprinkle was arrested Friday for an altercation at a bar, sources told Eleven Warriors. Sprinkle has been suspended indefinitely.

Sprinkle, a redshirt freshman, was named Division I co-defensive player of the year and a first-team Associated Press All-Ohio selection as a senior at Elyria High School. He recorded 103 tackles, 30 tackles for loss and 19 sacks for the Pioneers.

Given the fact that Sprinkle was not guaranteed playing time this year, this violation may constitute a release from the program at some point, but that will be up to coach Urban Meyer down the road.

But even without the guarantee of playing time, Sprinkle could have played his way onto the field, especially considering that Coach Meyere expressed how much he regretted not playing some of the true freshman last season, leaving options open for a lot of players on the roster including Sprinkle.

No instead if his playing time being the only uncertainty, his entire Ohio State career is now on the top of that list.
